I know that the UK likes to think of itself as "not quite part of Europe", but is it not an over-generalisation to claim that "Monday is the first day of the week in Europe"? Dbfirs 08:12, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
The previous definitions did not reflect the true international situation. I've made edits in line with the Wikipedia article. I'm happy to discuss this if anyone disagrees. The strange misconception about American and European conventions was added, probably in good faith, by an anonymous editor more than six years ago!Dbfirs 19:15, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
I think it's a bit weird for our definition to reference the ISO weekday standards. People must have seen Monday as the first day long before these were introduced, and many who still see it that way do not know of the standard (I didn't!). Equinox◑ 23:37, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Rfv-sense "A dark-skinned person." Said to be Boston slang. Is it attested? - -sche(discuss) 21:02, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Seems to have been inspired by a recent sports related news story SpinningSpark 23:47, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Two of those three articles claim that the slur already existed before the incident. The other one claims that it existed in "secret". So the usage clearly was not inspired by the incident. --WikiTiki89 (talk) 08:21, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
I meant putting in a Wiktionary entry was inspired by it. I have no idea if it is true that it was used earlier - I have found no cites. SpinningSpark 18:26, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
